Summary for Patent: 8,367,640
Title:Complex consisted of a polysaccharide and an HBP
Abstract: The invention relates to a complex consisted of a polysaccharide and an HBP, said polysaccharide being consisted from glycoside bonds of (1,6) and/or (1,4) and/or (1,3) and/or (1,2) type and functionalized with at least one salifiable or salified tryptophan derivative. The invention also relates to a pharmaceutical composition comprising a complex according to the invention and to the use of a polysaccharide consisted of glycoside bonds of (1,6) and/or (1,4) and/or (1,3) and/or (1,2) type and functionalized with at least one salifiable or salified tryptophan derivative, for the preparation of a pharmaceutical formulation of stable HBPs.

Assignee: Adocia (Lyons, FR)
Application Number:12/585,886
Patent Claims:1. A complex consisting of (1) a polysaccharide substituted with a tryptophan salt and (2) a heparin-binding protein (HBP), wherein the polysaccharide is a dextran functionalized with at least the tryptophan salt: said tryptophan salt being grafted or bound to the polysaccharide via coupling with an acid function, said acid function borne by a linker R bound to the polysaccharide via a function F, said function F resulting from coupling between the linker R and an --OH function of the polysaccharide, F being an ester, thioester, amide, carbonate, carbamate, ether, thioether or amine function, R being a chain containing between 1 and 18 carbon atoms, which is optionally branched and/or unsaturated, containing one or more heteroatoms selected from the group consisting of O, N, S and combinations thereof, and having at least one acid function, Trp being a residue of the tryptophan salt, L- or D-isomer, produced by coupling between the amine of tryptophan and at least one acid borne by the group R, said HBP being selected from the group consisting of: hormones selected from the group consisting of human growth hormone (hGH) and parathyroid hormone (PTH), and growth factors selected from the group consisting of transforming growth factors .beta.1 and 2 (TGF-.beta.), insulin-like growth factor 2 (IGF-2), heparin-binding EGF-like growth factor (HB-EGF), fibroblast growth factors (FGF) of type 1 to 14, keratinocyte growth factor (KGF), nerve growth factor .beta. (NGF-.beta.), connective tissue growth factor (CTGF), placental growth factor (PIGF), R-spondins 1 to 4, and vascular endothelial growth factors A and B (VEGF).

2. The complex as claimed in claim 1, wherein the polysaccharide has the structure of formula I: ##STR00003## wherein n represents the mole fraction of R substituted with Trp and is between 0.2 and 0.7, i represents the mole fraction of acid functions borne by the group R per saccharide unit and is between 0.5 and 2, when R is not substituted with Trp, then the acid(s) of the group R are carboxylates of a cation.

3. The complex as claimed in claim 2, wherein F is an ester, a carbonate, carbamate or an ether.

4. The complex as claimed in claim 2, wherein F-R is represented by: ##STR00004## or alkali metal cation salts thereof.

5. The complex as claimed in claim 1, wherein the polysaccharide/HBP ratio is between 0.5 and 500.

6. The complex as claimed in claim 1, wherein the polysaccharide/HBP ratio is between 0.5 and 100.

7. The complex as claimed in claim 1, wherein the HBP is selected from the group consisting of human growth hormone (hGH) and parathyroid hormone (PTH).

8. The complex as claimed in claim 1, wherein the HBP is selected from the group consisting of transforming growth factor .beta.1 and 2 (TGF-.beta.), insulin-like growth factor 2 (IGF-2), heparin binding EGF-like growth factor (HB-EGF), fibroblasts growth factors 1 to 14 (FGF), keratinocyte growth factor (KGF), nerve growth factor beta (NGF-beta), connective tissue growth factor (CTGF), placental growth factor (PIGF), R-spondins 1 to 4 and vascular endothelial growth factors A and B (VEGF).

9. A pharmaceutical composition comprising a complex as claimed in claim 1.

10. The pharmaceutical composition as claimed in claim 9, wherein it is obtained by drying and/or lyophilization.

11. A method of forming the complex of claim 1, comprising: forming a complex between the HBP and the polysaccharide by simple mixing of an aqueous solution of the HBP and an aqueous solution of the polysaccharide at room temperature, without addition of organic solvent.

12. The method of claim 11, wherein the aqueous solution of the polysaccharide is formed by dissolving a lyophilizate of the polysaccharide in water at room temperature.
